Place the gelatin and boiling water in a small bowl, and stir until gelatin is completely dissolved. Add food coloring. Pour the mixture into plastic lids- such as large coffee can lids, or margarine lids, and allow it to dry for 1-2 days. Remove the Gelatin Plastic from the lid when its edges are dry yet the center is still pliable. Repeat the recipe to make other colors.
This plastic can be cut with scissors to
make doll dishes, sequins and the like. Pieces can be threaded and hung
in a sunny place to look like stain glass or colored snowflakes or leaves.
